IT (Former Employee) – HQ- Houston – December 2, 2018
It's not a place to work if you have a sense of morality or ethics.
Leadership has no loyalty to anyone or anything other than their personal income.
Work load is intense and you won't be appreciated for what you do unless you somehow get on the radar of someone special. Not sure how one does that, but it isn't by being good at your job and working hard. Lazy blame shifters thrive while top notch people have been let go or made to leave. Perception is more important than reality.
Politics is never ending. One of the most corrupt and backstabbing environments I've ever worked in. I blame the bonus structure for that. People are given financial incentives to undermine their coworkers, so that they themselves can come out higher in the rankings.
Managers have a bonus incentive to purge great people having minor issues that are temporary. There is no decency. No compassion. No loyalty.
Working here can destroy your life as it did mine. Be careful.

Sky's the limit on how far you can go within LyondellBassell. The company is so open and wanting to listen to new, and different suggestions on developing synergies on projects, that will help drive savings for the company.
A company driven on metrics and pushes you to succeed!
While working at lyondellbasell my day to day was a repetitive routine of the same work. I learned what its like to work in a professional environment and how to be responsible for my own actions and work. The management was great everyone here is nice and we all treat each other with respect and kindness. Hardest part of the job was the consistency and having to stay focused on the work in hand. The most enjoyable part was the relaxation of the company and how understanding they are.

The people are very talented. Everyone digs in to ensure the facility runs reliability. Most days are spent supporting other teams by ensuring the infrastructure is in place to facility their projects and needs. This includes hardware and software management as well as OS patching and antivirus updates.

Process Technician (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 2, 2018
My overall experience was negative, very archaic in their treatment of operators. Overall morale is down about as low as it can be and operators are almost all looking for other places of employment. Money is great but your treatment leaves much to be desired.
